“Earth”

WARNING: Explicit language.

Why would I post something with explicit language? Because our very survival depends on all of us to wake up now. As the song Earth below says, “we gotta love the earth, we’re being stupid.” If shocking language is what jolts people into action, that’s OK with me. Self righteous comes to mind. It can’t really be a choice between swearing and trying to save the earth, can it?

I’m sure this will resonate with youth today. This song is already being heard around the world because of all the artists that have contributed to it. There have already been 2.6 million views in the 9 hours since it’s release.

For the past three years, Lil Dicky has quietly been creating one of the biggest all-star charity records since “We Are The World” and he’s finally ready to share it. “Earth,” a song about the desperate need to save the environment before it’s too late, was produced by Benny Blanco and Cashmere and features the rapper alongside Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, Halsey, Zac Brown, Brendon Urie, Hailee Steinfeld, Wiz Khalifa, Snoop Dogg, Kevin Hart, Adam Levine, Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Sia, Miley Cyrus, Lil Jon, Rita Ora, Miguel, Katy Perry, Lil Yachty, Ed Sheeran, Meghan Trainor, Joel Embiid, Tory Lanez, John Legend, Bad Bunny, Psy, Kris Wu, Backstreet Boys and Leonardo DiCaprio.

As I started thinking about my song, I thought, “It’s probably a good thing that all the profits that come from this song go to charities involved in saving the environment.” It was always in my head that this was going to be something that helped raise money for environmental issues, but I didn’t really know the facts. I looked into it and was blown away. I didn’t realize, remotely, that it was such an urgent, dire situation. I didn’t know that we literally have 12 years to completely change how we do so many things on Earth, from a fundamental standpoint, or the damage will be irreversible and in our lifetimes we’re going to experience such drastic impact. Upon realizing that, it went from a silly song about animals to, “Oh my God, this is the most important thing I’ll ever do.”
